Baghdad-1 AEW
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: 5-8205

Iran got at least two AEW/AWACs aircraft from Iraq during Golf War. The first is a Baghdad-1 type, a conversion of an Il-76 transport by putting a French made radar in the rear cargo ramp. This gives a very limited surveillance arc and means that the aircraft has to fly away from the target direction. The Baghdad was flown by IRIAF, possibly as a cargo plane, but appears to have been inactive for several years at Mehrabad air base in Tehran. The aircraft is now in very bad shape and almost certainly retired.

Simorgh (Adnan)
Unit: IRIAF
Serial: unknown

The other AEW converted Il-76 Iran got was the far more credible Adnan type, featuring the same French radar but in a conventional rotodome above the fuselage for 360 degree coverage. This was inactive for several years as Shiraz AB but is now operational. Iran has renamed the Adnan with an Iranian name, Simorgh. The Iraqi origin is still evident in the uncharacteristic slanted tail flash (which used to be the Iraqi flag).
